The Baguio City Jail Male Dorm (BCJMD) has obtained a Safety Seal certification from the Department of the Interior and Local Government affirming their compliance to the minimum health standards set by the Inter-Agency Task Force on the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases.

BCJMD Supt. Mary Ann Tresmanio said the seal is a manifestation of the proper observance of health protocols in the facility.

The BCJMD is the first government facility in the city to receive the Safety Seal.

“It gives us the assurance that we are on the right track in keeping our facility safe and healthy for all personnel and persons deprived of liberty,” she said.

She said the BCJMD still observes the e-dalaw for the 334 PDL as a precaution from the possible entry of infection.

They also continue to sanitize supplies brought in to the facility as an added precaution.

Tresmanio said the 70 personnel of the facility who are rendering duty are only allowed to go home after their two-week tour of duty. These personnel are required to present a negative RT-PCR test result when they report back to work.

The Safety Seal Certification Program aims to increase compliance of private and public entities with minimum public health standards set by the government and the adoption and use of digital contact tracing. – PNA
